The current essay title

How might works of imaginative fiction function either as ‘texts of’ or ‘texts for’ Christian theology? Discuss, making particular reference in your answer to the doctrine of sin and William Golding’s novel The Lord of the Flies.

This is fascinating stuff. Though, as always there’s far too much to read and never enough time

    Great question. You could probably do several PhDs on that topic! My favourite work of fiction is ‘East of Eden’ by John Steinbeck which is full of theology/biblical parallels. Though if you haven’t read it you probably don’t have time before your essay.
